One thing that will help Haula as a pro is that he can play with an edge when needed. You don't see it every single time he's on the ice but he has a good idea when to bring it out. If it turns out that he's not a top six player he can still be an excellent 3rd line pro, IMO.

Finnesotan? I believe the people of Stillwater call him a different name.

I'm sure someone will disagree with me, but I think Haula is the most talented, most complete player on the Gopher's this year (and was last year too). Hockey smarts, agility, speed, you name it, he's very good.
